2001 Display settings Visabilities...


New member
in 2001 (2004010) in assembly mode, when I go to View/Display Setting/Visabilities to get a section preview, only some components are "cut" for want of a better word, while others remain "uncut". as in, you have an assembly of a cube with a cylinder dowl in it, the visabilites settings will cut the cube but not the dowl..

anybody have any idea as to why this is? it seems to be happen only on certain assemblies and not on others,

appriciate any insight on this..



I use Wildfire 2.0, and there is an option when setting up x-sections that allows you to cut only specified components, as opposed to the whole assembly - I don't know if it's the same on 2001, but it's an idea to look into.
